START NOW AND BE PREPARED FOR RETIREMENT!
Retirement is one of the most important decisions we will make in our lifetime. There are many considerations that must be taken into account when contemplating retirement. Some of those considerations include, how much longer you will live, healthcare options, inflation, investments and/or other income, and annuity distributions.

We know you want to be prepared to handle all these decisions and planning opportunities. That's why we've arranged for someone to come and speak with you about these and other issues that can affect your retirement health. Please join us from noon to 1 p.m. Friday, April 25, in the Casey Room of the MLK Jr. Union for a lunch-and-learn opportunity. For questions regarding this short seminar, please contact Benefits at 581-5825 or email benefits@eiu.edu. (Please note: This is not a SURS counseling opportunity and is not in affiliation with SURS or any other state of Illinois retirement system.)

REMINDER TO SUBMIT YOUR SUMMER FLEX SCHEDULES ONLINE
Just a reminder as we prepare to take advantage of the summer flex hours that anyone required to complete a flex form should do so online. Completing the form online will send your schedule request to your supervisor for approval and, following that approval, will be electronically routed to the Benefits Office for final approval. Email notifications will notify you and your supervisor of the status of the submitted form. Please use the online system rather than submitting a paper form. To access the online system, please click here. If you need assistance completing the online flex form, please contact the Benefits Office for assistance by calling 581-5825 or emailing benefits@eiu.edu. In addition, please use this process anytime you are requesting a temporary modification to your work schedule, such as an alternative work schedule to attend classes.

HR CUSTOMER SERVICE SURVEY
Human Resources has a new customer service survey (located here) in order to allow the campus to provide feedback on our services. By letting us know our challenges and successes on a continuous basis, we hope to evaluate our processes so we can be more effective for the EIU community we serve. We thank you in advance for your responses!

CHECK YOUR MAILBOX!
Any faculty member, A&P or ASP who is terminating from the university for any reason must complete a Clearance Sheet before leaving campus. Check your mailbox because faculty Clearance Sheets will be mailed through campus mail during the month of April. The Clearance Sheet is required when leaving the university, so please carefully read and follow the instructions on the form to avoid the inconvenience of receiving a final paper check. If you have questions about the exiting process, or do not receive a Clearance Sheet, please contact Carol Galey (7655) or Cindy Maples (2613).
